The Passion of Others

Mon, 02/03/2020 - 21:29 -- CA4295

From the moment I wake up

To the time I lay down

My day goes about

Observing all around town


The people I pass 

From streets and through lanes

Their passion they put forth

And their focus on the gains


From the teacher who lectures

To the performers who dances 

From the doctors who heals

And to those who takes chances


No matter the agony

The sweat, tears, and blood

They strive to go forward 

Despite the slip in the mud


They put all their all

In the work that they do

And that’s what gives me hope

To do so too


And one day I hope

To find a purpose like theirs

To inspire others 

With motivating flares


Maybe that day will come

When one day I will show

But for now I will keep observing

And go with the flow


This poem is about: 
My community
Our world
